Voting Rights Primer: Ross Declines To Answer Key Questions About Census Citizenship Question

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was grilled Thursday by the House Oversight Committee about his move to add a census citizenship question. Many of the explanations he gave about damning 2017 emails — emails that contradicted his official justification for adding the question — didn’t pass the smell test. He also refused to say whether he spoke to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions about adding the question, or to anyone else at the White House besides Steve Bannon. Ross was not the only admin...

Angels’ Peter Bourjos hopes to revive career where it began, thanks to new swing

“It’s honestly the best spring I probably ever had,” Angels outfielder Peter Bourjos said. “I put in a lot of work with (hitting coaches Jeremy Reed and Shawn Wooten). I was pretty nervous coming in.

Carol Sloane: Spring Is Here

Carol Sloane is one of my favorite singers. She has a terrific sense of jazz articulation, she's a hip swinger and she goes deeper into a song than most other singers. She also takes risks mid-song to make standards sound more interesting. and when she leaps, she always lands sunny side up. Carol grew up as Carol Morvan in Providence, R.I., and started singing locally at age 14. On her first single at 16 in 1953, she was known as Carol Vann. In the '50s, she went off to Europe to appear in a to...

'UNIMOONS?'

But during their 2016 trip, the Dublin-based couple didn’t share the same bed, they didn’t eat a meal together nor did they officially consummate their marriage during their honeymoon. That’s because Ms. O’Brien, 37, a stylist and writer, and Mr. Maclaine, 40, a golf and corporate photographer, took separate honeymoons, otherwise known as solomoons or unimoons. After their wedding, Ms. O’Brien celebrated in Canada, while Mr. Maclaine and his friends flew to France. (Thanks to Ross C)

"... that, as it turns out, is fake. Former co-workers of Holmes told The Dropout, a new podcast about Theranos’s downfall, that Holmes occasionally 'fell out of character' and exposed her real, higher voice — particularly after drinking.... Holmes is obviously guilty of many more serious crimes, but faking one’s voice is just weird, and embarrassing, in much the same way that bad toupees are: they place one’s bodily insecurities center stage.... Personally, the episode has brought me back to an...

Ross Claims Ignorance To Suggestion That Aide Came Up With Census Change Rationale

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross claimed ignorance Thursday when asked about comments from his own aide, Earl Comstock, that suggested that the Commerce Department, and not the Justice Department, came up with the rationale for adding a Census citizenship question. “ I have no idea what you are  talking about,” Ross told Rep. John Sarbanes (D-MD) at a House Oversight Committee hearing. Sarbanes appeared to be referring to deposition Comstock gave in the lawsuits challenging Ross’ decision. C...

Ross Won’t Disclose What White House Convos He Had About Census Citizenship

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday declined to elaborate on what conversations he may have had with the White House about adding a Census citizenship question —  beyond detailing his previously-known spring 2017 phone call with then-Trump advisor Steve Bannon. House Oversight Democrats sought to grill Ross on any White House conversations, given that his testimony in front of Congress last year suggested he had none. At Thursday’s hearing, Ross said that any hypothetical White House d...

Whicker: Mikey Garcia dares to face ‘The Truth’

The pre-fight trailer is frenetic, like the fight might be. It shows blurry shots of Errol Spence Jr. and Mikey Garcia lashing at the bag, flooring opponents, putting in the backstage work for Saturday night. At the end, the camera moves close to their faces. The final shot is Garcia, wearing his black cowboy hat. Just before it fades, he breaks into an involuntary smile. It is the perfect entrance to what might or might not happen at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. It suggests Garcia knows so...

Ross Can’t Explain His 2017 Email Citing Opposition To Citizenship Question

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said he didn’t know who was he referring to in an August 2017 email when he mentioned someone being dug “in about not” asking “the citizenship question.” “I do not know the answer to your question as I sit here,” Ross said. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), who was grilling Ross at a House Oversight Committee hearing, struggled to get him to answer the question. First, Ross said he couldn’t answer her question without a copy of the email in front of him, an...

Ross Grilled On Emails From Early 2017 Showing His Interest In Census Change

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday attempted to explain to lawmakers an email he sent to an aide on May 2, 2017, expressing frustration “nothing” had been done in response to his “months old” request to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. The email undercut his previous congressional testimony that suggested the push to add the citizenship question was initiated by a December 2017 Justice Department request to have it included. Ross on Thursday said that he was frustrated i...

Ross’ Weird Census Logic: One Bad Citizenship Question Justifies Another!

Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday pointed to the crappy performance of a citizenship question on a smaller scale survey to defend his move to add it to the 2020 census. The smaller scale survey is the American Community Survey, a rolling survey the Census Bureau operates that goes out only to a small segment of the population. Ross and others have pointed to the question’s presence on the ACS to respond to concerns that the question was not tested for the decennial census before he added it. ...

Ross Denies He Wanted Citizenship Question For Major Voting Rights Change

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross denied that he sought to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census in order to change how congressional seats are allocated across the country. Back in mid-2017, then-Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach pitched Ross on adding a citizenship question and a legal status question, so that the count for congressional apportionment would not include certain immigrants. “I have no control over what Kris Kobach or anyone else puts in an email to me,” Ross said, re...

Voting Rights: House Dems To Seek Answers From Ross On Census Citizenship Question

Another federal judge, this one in California, blocked the Trump administration’s move to add a citizenship question. The injunction handed down by U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg Wednesday was broader than the one handed down by a judge in New York earlier this year; Seeborg banned a citizenship question from being added to the census for any reason because it would harm the survey’s accuracy. Whether the question is removed will ultimately be up to the Supreme Court, which has scheduled ar...
